Jay White: Coyote Walk
Tracking Walk led by Amish Morrell, Thursday, October 20, 5:30 pm
Free shuttle bus departs OCAD U (100 McCaul St) at 4:30 pm, returning at 7:30 pm
Artist Jay White will spend up to four days travelling on the margins between the University of Toronto Scarborough campus and nearby suburbs and riparian areas, avoiding contact with humans. During the walk he will wear a tracking device that transmits his location at half-hour intervals (information on his location will be posted on the DMG website on the evening of Wednesday, October 19). The public is invited to take on the role of documenting his passage through photography and/or video, while maintaining a respectful distance and respecting his desire for privacy.
On Thursday, October 20, join curator Amish Morrell for a guided walk tracking the artist’s route. Participants will be bussed to the starting point of the walk at 5:30 pm, and are encouraged to come for the first two hours. (Though for the adventurous, there will be an option to continue until 9 pm.) Rain or shine. Open to all, free, spaces limited. To register, email email@example.com. Please note whether or not you will be riding the free shuttle bus when reserving your spot. Further instructions, including suggestions around what to wear and bring, will be provided upon registration.
